#1 Deleting lines with string

Posted by: ssissons | Date: 03/02/2017 16:33 | IP: IP Logged

Is there a way to delete all lines in file, that contain a particular string? Without doing a Find w/List, and going through them manually? (It takes a lot of tedious effort to do this with large files.)

Hi,
you can use the [Copy] function of the Find dialog;
check [x] Copy non-matching
insert the specific string into the search field and press [Copy].
You effectively get a copy of the file excluding the lines containing the search word.
